Results from drilling completed last month at the Camel Creek gold project have extended and confirmed the excellent resource potential in the area, says Great Northern Minerals.
The company has received all assay results from recent aircore and reverse circulation drilling at the North Queensland project and says planning for a larger scale drilling program to test for extensions at depth and along strike
The total recent drilling program at Camel Creek comprised 15 aircore and RC holes for 1090m.
It tested three different areas and extended drill testing completed earlier by Great Northern Minerals to over 1000m of strike, underneath a series of previously mined shallow open pits.
Higher grade results included 10m at 6.63 g/t gold, including 5m @at 2.20 g/t gold.
“The results from the recent drilling at Camel Creek have extended and confirmed the excellent resource potential in the area,” managing director Cameron Mclean said.
“Consistent mineralised zones have been intersected and provide an excellent platform for a large resource drilling program at Camel Creek to be completed in 2021.
“Further, we are learning more about the general geological structure of the mineralised area, where historical mining scratched the surface, providing for potential future growth opportunity.”
